Church in the Act of Incorporation of 1853, but is opeii.to members of all religious denominations.
I n the year 1877, on the motion of Dr. Morrison, the General Assembly appointed a Committee to take charge of the site in the interests of the Presbyterian Church. Shortly after, owing to the fact that the object for whicli the land was granted had not been carried out, communications were received from the Government on the subject. On receipt of these communications, it was at once resolved to raise sub- scriptions, to get the Crown Grant issued for the land, and to f>roceed with the erection of a College. When subscriptions lad been received to the amount of £6,000, Mr. Francis Ormond mode an offer of £10,000, provided that £10,000 was raised by the Church from other sources. In less than a year the Council were in a position to receive Mr. Ormoud's sub- scription ; tenders were accepted for the erection of a College, and the foundation stone was laid by His Excellency the Marquis of Normanby on the 14th of November, 1879. The College was formally opened hy His Excellency the Governor on the 18th March, 1881. After the opening ceremony, D r . . Morrison hod the pleasure of announcing that Mr. Ormond had offered to bear the whole cost of the structural part of the building, so that the remaining subscriptions could be entirely devoted to the payments for fittings, improvements, repairs, salaries, &c.
I n 1883, owing to the number of applicants for admission, it was found necessary to enlarge the buildings. A new dining hall and kitchen were built, and subsequently a new wing, containing Students' bedrooms, sitting-rooms, bath rooms, Students' common-room, & c , was added to the College, and formally opened by Mrs. Ormond on the 23rd December, 1885.
All the rooms have been uniformly and comfortably fur- nished by the Council. A separate bedroom is provided for each Student, and each sitting-room is shared by two Students. ,
A Lawn Tennis Court, Billiard Room, and Reading Room have also been provided, and handed over to the management of the Students themselves.
